On August 21st, we learned that Nigeria had not reported a new case of polio in 3 years, bringing us that much closer to eradicating the disease from the planet.  
You can learn more in the great articles from the Star Tribune and End Polio
 
 
Join Rotary on World Polio Day, 24 October, to celebrate our progress. Help us reach our goal of a polio-free world by donating today.
Rotarians from Districts 5950, 5960 and 5580 showed their pride at Rotary Blitz at the fair on August 30th!
 
You may have seen us at the booth at Dan Patch, creating a buzz at the media sites, or helping in the horse barn at EquiMania!
It was a great day for Rotarians to join friends, meet others, and share our love of Rotary!
